Meet the team at Buckhead Dental 

Passionate, knowledgeable professionals you can trust

Dr. Vik Bhatia, DMD

As a Georgia native, Druid Hills High School graduate and Medical College of GA Alum, Dr. Vik is proud to serve the Brookhaven community and surrounding areas.  After attending MCG, where he received his Doctorate in Dental Medicine (DMD), he had the unique opportunity to work with dental cosmetic specialists throughout the city, while acquiring additional experience in general dentistry through his work with a large group practice here in Georgia.  With these skills he is able to bring artistry and excellence to his everyday work.  He enjoys being a general/family dentist, and creating relationships with his patients that will last for generations.  Dr. Vik invites patients of all ages to join his practice.

With the goal of offering first class patient centered dental care, Dr. Vik continues to travel throughout the country, staying abreast of new dental technology and cutting edge innovations for patients.  Pain management and painless dentistry are his primary practice goals.

Dr.Bhatia is focused on his patient’s well being and has taken important steps to ensure their safety.  By implementing digital x-rays, he hopes to reduce radiation for his patients, and no longer require the use of chemicals.  His dental office also uses special amalgam traps in the office to prevent the mercury in the old silver fillings removed from going into the environment.

In his personal life, he is very family oriented and enjoys spending time with his wife, Dr. Tasneem Bhatia (Dr. Taz) and their two children Rania and Kabir.  He is passionate about serving others as a healer and lives up to the true meaning of a Doctor.

He is a member of the following organizations:

Dr. Chen is a native of Marietta, GA. After graduating from McEachern High School, he attended Emory University and received his Bachelors of Science in Biology.  He received his dental degree from the Medical College of Georgia in Augusta.  After graduation, He went to practice in rural South Georgia where he has been helping the underserved community.  Throughout his career, Dr. Chen has practiced all aspects of dentistry.  His biggest passion is utilizing the CEREC technology, which allows for same day treatment of crowns, veneers, and onlays.  He understands that it can be hard to make time to see the dentist, and tries his hardest to be efficient and serve your needs as quickly as possible.
